Hi,I tried to open in Gimp large font. Got a picture. Tell me what palette to use?
Where did that image come from? A screenshot of the vanilla apoc (from dosbox or something?) That is really the only 'canon' reference. It then should be reasonably simple to compare the indices contained within the font against all the palettes, and see what colours match..
I don't know which palette this uses off the top of my head, I believe we just use pal_06.dat or our own ui_palette.png (in data/UI under openapoc) - pmprog may know better where that palette came from....
is a screenshot of vanila "bigfont.dat" open as "raw"
I also experimented with the file BIGFONT.SPC, yes, maybe it kerning.
How to make a kerning in the derivation of the font OPENAPOC?
Basic Latin. Nice!
Hmm... I see that it is labelled as freeware...is it really freeware
I was able to understand the algorithm font kerning.*.spc files. File spc consists of records indentation for each symbol (symbol interlaced below).It then computes the indentation along the x axis according to the formula:
1char_b - back index of the first character
2char_f - front of the second character Indexes
Separate names with a comma.
